A brief description of the sustainability trainings and professional development opportunities available to staff :
The Bucknell Environmental Center promotes weekly Green Bag Lunch seminars to provide an opportunity for university students, alumni, faculty, and staff to share current research and projects and/or discuss current issues related to sustainability and the environment.
For the past two years, Bucknell has held an annual Sustainability Symposium, which has featured panel discussions, presentations, and outdoor demonstrations. The keynote presentation from this past year was "Plenitude: The New Economics of Sustainability," by Juliet Schor, Professor of Sociology at Boston College. All faculty and staff are encouraged to attend.

Since the performance year, some significant changes to sustainability programming have occurred at the University. Most notably the Bucknell University Environmental Center has changed to the Bucknell Center for Sustainability and the Environment, and the Campus Greening Initiative has changed to the Sustainable Design Program. As a result, the content of the associated websites may reflect these changes.
